Restored by GMT Racing. 110 horsepower Virtuoso Performance 1600 c.c. Ford Cortina engine with two hours on it. High Tech header. Four speed Hewland Mk.9 gearbox. Tilton clutch and pressure plate. Koni double adjustable shocks. Genuine original 69 in excellent condition.
The Lotus 69 is at the top of the pre-1972 historic Formula Ford class. We are aware of two 69's that sold in 2010, one for $48,000 and the other for $43,000. This car is substantially better than both. Another 69 is currently for sale at $59,500. The 69 seen here is $10,000 less, with better, national championship winning, history. It is also correctly set up and on the button. This 69 is the best value currently on the market for someone looking to win in historic Formula Ford, and also have a valuable, appreciating, motor racing asset. The owner has moved up to another car, and no longer has time to run the Lotus. He is motivated to sell it.
